Book Description
Learn how you can build the next big programming language,compiler,or source code analyzer using LLVM and Clang

Key Features
Explore Clang,LLVM’s middle-end and backend,in a pragmatic way
Develop your LLVM skillset and get to grips with a variety of common use cases
Engage with real-world LLVM development through various coding examples

Every programmer or engineer,at some point in their career,works with compilers for optimizing their applications. Compilers convert a high-level programming language into low-level machine-executable code. LLVM provides the infrastructure,reusable libraries,and tools needed for developers to build their own compilers. With LLVM’s extensive set of tooling,you can effectively generate code for different backends as well as optimize them.

In this book,you’ll explore the LLVM compiler infrastructure and understand how to use it to solve different problems. You’ll start by:looking at the structure and design philosophy of important components in LLVM and gradually move on to using Clang libraries to build tools that help you analyze high-level source code. As you advance,the book will show you how to process LLVM IR – a powerful way to transform and optimize the source program for various purposes. Equipped with this knowledge,you’ll be able to leverage LLVM and Clang to create a wide range of useful programming language tools,including compilers,interpreters,IDEs,and source code analyzers.

by:the end of this LLVM book,you’ll have developed the skills to create powerful tools using the LLVM framework to overcome different real-world challenges.

What you will learn

Find out how LLVM’s build system works and how to reduce the building resources
Get to grips with running custom testing with LLVM’s LIT framework
Build different types of plugins and extensions for Clang
Customize Clang’s toolchain and compiler flags
Write LLVM passes for the new PassManager
Discover how to inspect and modify LLVM IR
Understand how to use LLVM’s PGO (profile-guided optimizations) framework
Create custom compiler sanitizers
